Legislators 'Pretending' to Live on Minimum Wage? Ineffective, Lazy, Offensive

September 30, 2015 - 10:00am

At least 18 Florida lawmakers started living on minimum wage this week to draw attention to the need to increase the state's minimum wage to $15 an hour.

It's all part of something called the "minimum wage challenge," a campaign by the Service Employees International.

These 18 lawmakers, all Democrats, will live on $17 a day for five days.

It’s time. In fact, it's past time.

Debbie needs to go.  President Obama should have replaced her already as DNC chair, but since he hasn’t, it's up to the Jewish community and the African-American community to get the job done.

She is no longer fit to hold that congressional seat, and between the two communities, we can take it away from her. A message should be sent to DWS, and really, others, who think they have taken up permanent residence in Washington, D.C.

That message is: We put you in, and we can take you out.

Well, looky, looky-lou!

Just like I pointed out previously, I dont have to seek out information, information finds its way to my inbox on its own, or at least with the help of others! It seems as though someone was busy at 1:30 on the morning of July 30.
